Curtis Hairston

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

A killer debut from Curtis Hairston – an overlooked 80s soul singer who should have made it big, given the strength of this set! The album's got a tight groove, but is never too commercial – a bit away from other Atlantic soul of the time, thanks to some solid studio help from Kae Williams of BB&Q Band, a group with whom Hairston had worked previously. Williams arranged and produced half the set – the rest was done by Greg Radford – and the album mixes Hairston's well-crafted vocals with a mixture of upbeat rhythms and mellower tunes, the latter of which we like the best. Titles include "You're My Shining Star", "Chillin Out", "All We Have Is Love", "Take Charge", "The Morning After", and "Hold On (For Me)". (Cover has a promo stamp, cutout notch & factory sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul!

Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint-
Wicked electric funk from Young Holt Unlimited – and a real departure from the sound of their 60s albums, and a step into a groove that's very 70s-styled overall! The album's heavy on Fender Rhodes – played not just by group member Ken Chaney, but also by a young Bobby Lyle – ... LP, Vinyl record album
